Welcome to my second post today! Both have been pre-scheduled as I'm actually in Toronto with my middle guy who is writing a placement test for one of his fall courses. We decided to head up the night before in order to avoid the morning rush-hour traffic going through the city.
This week, Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon. Her theme is "In Sympathy". I have such a difficult time with sympathy cards (as I know many do) as a simple card never seems enough (and isn't!) to ease somebody's heartache. However, a card IS love in an envelope and a gesture of shared sorrow.
For my card, I used Simon Says Stamp's Wild Beauty stamp set. I masked a portion of the card with a washi-tape die cut and stamped around that before ink blending. After inking, I stamped my sentiment (retired from My Craft Spot) before adding some water and paint splatters. I also added a bit more ink to the flowers for further definition. I finished everything off with a few sequins.
Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Girlfriends' creations and to link up your own "In Sympathy" project too.
